Queensryche, "Gonna Get Close To You," (Rage For Order): I was a real late-comer to Queensryche (to put in lightly). Not until last year, when Sean Kinney took me to a QR show at the House of blues in LA, did I finally understand the full power of this band. "Close To You" was a stand out that night.
Motorhead Duff McKagan's column runs every Thursday on Reverb. He writes about what's circulating through his iPod every Monday.
Judas Priest, "Hellion," (Best of Judas Priest): Kick-ass metal. I wasn't exposed to a ton of heavy metal in my teens, but JP was a band that we punkers in Seattle could totally appreciate.
Motorhead, "Emergency," (Ace of Spades): Motorhead rules and no one really needs to say anything more!
